Hajime Sorayama is a world famous Japanese illustrator, known for his precisely detailed, erotic hand painted portrayals of women and feminine robots.
Created his first robotic arts in the 1970s and 1980s...
Many Sexy Robotic forms are termed "Gynoids" which are half metal, half human.
Sorayama paints a future as the Ukiyo-e floating world and likes metal, latex, water, leather and the female form; all painted as his vision of a fantasy world.
It is in the tradition of Hokusai, and that basis is one that is formed and developed by the artist's creative thoughts.
Using a specialized brush designed by the artist allows Sorayama to hand paint in what is termed hyper-realistic style. It's unique among artist illustrators who recognize tiny paint strokes specific to his technique.
...Sorayama's work has been remarkably prescient. ... the futuristic aura of the robotic, mythic and fantastical figures in his art have always been ahead of their time; predictive of the future.....recognition comes from arts held by major museums, his collectors including major moviemakers, fashion designers and many industry leaders.
